The Prince of Wales is consistently referred to as Prince Edward. In fact he would have been referred to as Prince Albert and in the company of peers simply as Bertie.

Omar Sharif and Catherine Deneuve were both so splendid and believable in their roles. The sets were superb. The script and acting were top drawer. Part of the pathos of the movie is that it was based on a true story. Seldom is it hard for me to find a drawback to a movie. This movie is one well worth seeing more than once. It was hard to find the video, but I did, and purchased it immediately. History buffs will be enthralled. Romantics will be satiated. Just can't say enough in praise of the movie.
